Just coming off a visit to Michigan, and some trusted people on other boards said this would be happening this week.

but not as lengthy as you might expect from the composite #92 player.  It may be because it's still early and he hasn't made a lot of on campus visits yet.  He looks like a very good player though.

Aside from Rivals which has him at 105.  Can't find him on ESPN.

My uneducated take from two highlight reels is he is a shooter.  Long range and mid-range.  Can get close to the hoop, but doesn't seem to quite be able to dunk it.  Also capable of distributing the ball.  I'd say he fills sort of a MAAR role or Stu Douglass where you could slot him at the point in a pinch, but you'd rather he play the off-guard spot ideally.

I didn't see highlights including him dunking, and I wanted to pass that interpretation along to say that he's maybe not as athletic at this point as some other similarly sized prospects in the class.  Not saying he can't dunk or that he will never dunk in his collegiate career, just saying it wasn't in the film I watched.  And yeah, maybe he doesn't need/want to.

Allow me to predict the future here:

He'll blow up next summer, get more attention, higher programs will offer him, and John Beilein will be lauded for his ability to spot talent.
